Thyroid transcription factor-1 (TTF-1) protein expression is widely used in the diagnosis of lung and thyroid carcinomas. Although there have been reports of TTF-1 immunoreactivity in tumors other than those originating in the lung or the thyroid, the expression of this marker has been studied in only a limited number of ovarian neoplasms. Our study examines the incidence of TTF-1 expression in a variety of ovarian epithelial neoplasms. Tissue microarrays of 138 ovarian serous carcinomas, 65… CONTINUE READING

Although TTF-1 nuclear expression is generally considered to be a relatively specific marker for lung and thyroid neoplasms , the occasional immunoreactivity of ovarian carcinomas should be considered in the evaluation of neoplasms of unknown primary origin .
